Difference between "Pending Active" and "Active Public"?
Hi XTube Team!
I uploaded a video yesterday and it has gained a few dozen views, but it's status is labeled "Pending Active" compared to another video I uploaded with a couple of weeks ago that is labeled "Active Public".
If they're both uploaded and are viewable by the public, what is the difference between these two labels? I tried visiting http://www.xtube.com/faq/content-statuses for more information, but there isn't information for neither "Active Public" or "Pending Active" labels.
’ Pending Active ’ is a converting / encoding stage of the video until it’s status gets ‘Normal’.
If you are still having doubts, don’t hesitate contacting support and providing the title of the video in question. :)
We apologize for any trouble caused.

You should really add these descriptions to the http://www.xtube.com/faq/content-statuses page and make a note that generally it takes 24-48 hours for it to go from pending active to active public.
I had several videos already active public and then changed to pending active. Do you know why?
Thanks to anonymous for explaining!
The statuses are nonsense. They don't line up with any of your documentation.
"Pending Active" is the status during the two-day delay for non-VIP members' videos when they're on the site and viewable but not yet "latest videos" and searchable.
